Locals are invited to join the fun during North Bend’s largest festival, the tenth annual Downtown Block Party and fourth annual Legends Car Show. The event will be held from noon to 11 p.m. on July 21 and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on July 22.

The Block Party offers excellent entertainment, music, activities, tasty local food and drinks for the entire family. The 2018 Block Party will feature live entertainment with performances by Crème Tangerine, Petty Differences, Spike and the Impalers, LocoMotive, Kellee Bradley, Lights Out, The Amber Lanterns, Ignite Dance and Yoga, Cascade Dance, DMW Martial Arts and more.

“This year, we will celebrate a beloved community event that began a decade ago as a small festival with a few local vendors and activities and has grown into a much-anticipated event with over 60 merchants and fun-filled activities throughout the day,” Mayor Ken Hearing said in a press release. “The Block Party really brings families together. We encourage everyone to come down, support your local businesses and join in the fun.”

The Kid Zone will be hopping with a variety of bouncing, sliding, climbing and playing opportunities for tiny tots to teenagers. Local organizations including Encompass, the Downtown Foundation and the city are getting together to keep much of it free for play from noon to 5 p.m.

Shopping in Snoqualmie Valley is always fun, and this year’s Block Party will highlight local merchants, artisans, crafters and other organizations. Be sure to check out our new participants, local animal adoption agencies who will be bringing their furry friends.

There will be a beer garden for those at least 21 years of age outside Iron Duck featuring local breweries and a wine garden in the alley next to Cascadia Spa and Stoves, featuring wines from local wineries.

Sunday brings the Legends Car Show, running from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. along North Bend Way, from Bendigo through Ballarat. The day will include fun and games for all ages, 21 divisions for trophies, raffle and prize drawings.
